Housing and interfaces
It is housed in a compact plastic case and offers a CAN channel which is carried out in accordance to ISO 11898. Over the wireless interface, wifiCAN can be used at any laptop or desktop PC with a Wi-Fi interface and also firmware updates can be installed. An ad-hoc mode enables a direct connection between the wifiCAN and Wi-Fi port of the notebook/PC. An integration of wifiCAN to an existing Wi-Fi infrastructure is also possible.
Wireless data transmission up to 65 Mbit/s
The new Sontheim wifiCAN simplifies your data transmission thanks to Wi-Fi technology. With up to 65 Mbit/s the data will be transferred wirelessly according to IEEE802.11b/g/n standard. Consequently wifiCAN offers all important interfaces located in a tiny case for mobile or stationary use.
Data-logging and customized possibilities
Thanks to the 32 bit microcontroller a fast data handling with low power consumption is possible. The power supply can be effected from 9V to 42 V and be customized. You can configure the baud rate from 50 Kbit to 1 Mbit freely via software and adapt it to your process requirements. Also the CAN connection can be adapted to the customer‘s request (SubD9, ISOBUS connector, ...). Additionally wifiCAN is equipped with a micro SD card with up to 2 GB of memory that can be used for logging data.
Comprehensive software support
Of course, wifiCAN is supported by all Sontheim software like CANexplorer 4 for CAN bus diagnostics or MDT for vehicle applications like diagnostics or End-of-Line processes. Additionally, with purchasing an interface you get the programming interface (API) for integrating the wifiCAN into your own software. Thanks to the CANfox mapping, applications can be taken simply and without changes from CANfox to wifiCAN.
